M . President i I so sincerely deprecate tho cx
Kctation of a speech from mo on this occasion,
tli.it although it is not exactly in good tnsto to bo

allowed to say that I havo como hither on this oc

committing myself nsain and irretrievably to
great cau.'O ot humanity (applause). Besides, 1
nm a timid man, and I like to bo on the safe side
on tho strong side (applause). I do not think'
I have courngo enough to be, or to npi car to be,
on the pro-slavery side, though I should havo tho
President, his Cabinet and all Concress to back
mo (laughter). And besides, ngain, it is difficult
V make a speech. When
linve notes be I ore me, nml there is a re strain in cr
1 there is a rostra nine-!
grace there; but upon this free platform it is diffi
cult to speak in any measured terms upon Slavery;
nnd nt the present timo, when wo think what is
doing nt Washington, it seems to me that if nny
man who has a heart in his bosom rises and ut
tcmpts to speak on tho subject, hi words must
dm away in a shriek of horror and iudisntitinn.
I rccullcct, thirty or forty years ngo (and nearly
all who nre old enough to remember so far back
havo a similar recollection), that when the subject
ot Mavcry was ineiiliuncd our ciders used to shako
their heads, look cravo. nnd savi "Ah! (hero is
the danger; that is tho thing which is poing to1
work tho ruin of this country ; tlmt is tho black

last send out torrfi.lo lightning to .bPsli to pieces

would at last rise upon their masters; that the
terrors of St. Uomingo would be ro-cnaetcd here
on a larger and more frightful senlo : nnd that a
or bntwoen the two races would be begun, which
wmil.l nn.l.nl.lu I ..... !..!.. I.. .!.--. ..,.1! I .
would probably terminate in the establishment of
a block empire over nearly one half of tho country.!
That dread of Insurrection has now almost entire-
Iy died away. It docs not appear to be
that the slaves will ever riso of thcmsolvcs:
the rock less determination with liiih slnvnrv
necks to en largo her borders more and more, look

shows how distant that day is, iu tho opprohousiou
of the South, when the blacks may riso.
I am frco to admit that I think thoro is very lit
tie danger of an insurrection; and for two rea
sons: first, tho character of tho coloured race
themselves, so gentlo and so docilo. Tho fact that
nearly four millions of them have boon kept under
such unmitigated despotism, and have never made
any attempt to strike it off, creates a strong pre
sumptiun that they never will rise. The second
fuct, w hich is our protection ngaiuat insurrection,
is the existence of the Abolitionists. Abolition at
the North is the protection of the Southern sluve-
inaster. 1 know that the title Abolitionist is look
ed on as but another word fur incendiary and tiro
braud; but tlie existence of the abolitionists

to-day tho noeessily of yot presenting to tlio Amer

is as yet noeded from the peoplo of this country
practical raeognitinn of tho fact that the coloured
man is a man and as such is entitled to equal
rights, with other men? But, Sir, we have well
grounded hope in tho history of Past success nnd
tho present aspect of our cause, that our causo will
yot triumph. I beg leave, Sir, to offer, a nn f

to savo itscll lrom sinking 7 llithorto wo have heard
a great deal about Southern chivalry, Southorn dig
nity und Southern self-respect, lu times past these
trails of character havo been strongly exhibited on
Mir ions occasions, so that when any Northern dough

tho slaveholders have invariably spit insin him and
spurned liuu ns one almost too base for them to
touch even with their feet, lint now, when John
Mitclicl comes over hero and gets down, not on nil
fours, but on his belly (laughter), and uttomnts to
curry favor of that demoniac power which governs
us all, is no spit upon as, judging lrom the past, we
had reason to suppose be would bo by Southern
slaveholders? No; in their great extrumity, they

After singing another Hymn, tho Sociotv ad
It has boon tacitly assumed and eonccded
throughout the discussion excited by the murder
of Ilutlor and the trial of Ward that tho shooting
of schoolmasters wns, in the abstract, rcprehcnsi
siblo, whatever might bo tho judgement with
regard to any particular schoolmaster. The
ltiihmond Examiner, howover. has broached a
different theory namely, that tho shooting of
averago. Sorthe rn schoolmasters by southorn gen
tlemen is correct ana contmendaulo. thus runs
The Examiner's ivormcnt:
"Tho South has for venrs been overrun with
hordes of illiterate, unprincipled graduates of the
lankcoirce schools, (those hot-beda ot sett-con
ceit r.nd ignoranco.) who havo, by dint of unblush
ing impudence, established thcmsolvcs as school
master in our midst. Theso creatures, with rare
exceptions, havo notdesorved the protection of our
laws. They bear ncitlicr in person or in mind a
very strong roscmhlanco to human beings. In lan
guage, morals, manners nnd education, they might
load one to boliove that Frankenstein was not the
myth of a German romance-writer, and tho Yahoo
a real rather than a fabulous monster, born of the
envenomed nnd sntiricnl pen of Swift. Of this
class, 'Ichnbod Crnno,' a northern writor's portrait
ot a Yankee schoolmaster, is a most complimentary
and llattoriug picture. So odious are some of
thoso 'itinerant ignoramuses' to the peoplo of the
South so full of abolitionism and concealed in
cendiarism are many of this class ; so full of guile,
fraud nnd deceit, that tho deliberate shooting of
ono of thorn down, in tho net of poisoning the
minds of our slaves or our children, we think, if
regarded ns homncide nt all should always be
duenied jierfertly justifiable ; and ve imagine that
the prourielu of sliootlna an abolition schoolmaster.
when caught tampering with our sluvci, has never
been questioned by any intelligent southern man.
This ire take to be the unwritten common late tf the
South, and wo deem it advisable to promulgate tho
law, that it may be copied into all the Abolition
papers, thundered ut by tho three thousand Now
England preachers, and read with peculiar empha
sis, und turriblo upturning of eyes, by Harrison, at
tlio next meeting ot tho nnti-Shivery pnrty nt r an-
euil J1Iiia.1I. Wo repeat, that thn Shootiim of itine
rant Aliolilinn schoolmasters is frequently a credi
table and laudable out, entitling a respectable
southern man to, at least, a scat in the Legislature
or a place iu tho Common Council. Lot all Yan
keo schoolmaster who propose invading the South,
endowed with a strong nasal twang, a lone scrip
tural name, 'and Webster's loxicographio liook of
ulHiminations, sock some moro congenial land,
where their livos will bo more secure than in the
vilo nml 'homicidal slavo States.' Wo shall be
glad if tho raving of tho Abolition press about the
Ward acquittal, shall have this effect.
"1 ho shoot inn of a southern man of education
and talents, a professor aud useful citizen, has
produced a just degree of indignation, excitement
and lawless exhibition of violunt fooling, which
time does not appear to diminish. But we regret
to announce that tho shooting or a meddlesome
Now England Abolition schoolmaster would result
iu uo such exhibition of popular rago. Tho neigh
bors of tho tortunnto marksman might givo him
barbaouo or run him lor Cungross, but beyond that
nothing would lie done.
Wo wish The Examiner would und or take
tell us what creates the large demand for Northern
schoolmasters at tlio boutti, whilo southorn tench
ors are rare as wluto blackbirds at tho North
certainly is not any excessive demand for teachers
among 'tho Chivalry,' for New xork alone cm
more teachers than uny flvo Slavo States. What

NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS.
Somo two or three weeks since we gaye notice,
that after mature reflection and experiment, the
Executive Committee had come to the conclusion,
to dispense with the rigid inlo previously adopted
by recommendation of tho Society, enforcing jn-&
paymrnt in all catet. It seems to be hardly ap
plicable to a paper like ours, advocating ultra nnd
unpopular sentiments, and for which we wished to
procure many readers, from whom we could hard
ly expect adranct payment, as the paper was often
engaged in exposing their wrong positions and re
buking their wrong doings.
Notwithstanding this, wo still desiro pro-payment,
and hope to receive It, from tlio groat major
ity of our subscribers. It will bo fur their iutcrost
nnd for ours that we should.
In order flint nil may have tho opportunity of
paying as soon as their subscription expires, tho
Publishing Agent will tend notices of the time
when subscriptions terminate, at least thrco weoks
before the tinio of thoir expiration. Thus all will
know whon to forward thoir subscription money.
All who wish to discontinue, aro requested to
irnVe their name and atUhfn, with tho word discon
tinue, on a papor and direct it to the Anti-Slatcry
Bugle. This is tho easiest, cheapest and best
method of notifying a discontinuance, and will se
cure prompt attention.
Subscriptions may be sent by mail at our risk.
Hcnorally, money comes safely; occasionally, a
let.er is lost. Hut in such caso subscribers will
not be the losers if we nio made acquainted with
the fact. Better to keep a description of tho mon
ey sent, and lot the post-master know when you
mail tho letter, that it contains money. Postage
stamps can be sent for change
CIRCULATION OF THE BUGLE.
We have the pleasure of acknowledging In our
receipts this week, Tin Hundred Dollars from the
Cincinnati ljaditt' Anti-Hlattry Seicing Circle, In
payment lor papers to be sent to persons not now
subscribers, with the hope that they may bo dis-
posed to become such, thus extending the circula'
tion and usefulness of tho paper. Persons, thoro'
fore, who aro not subscribers, aud who rocoivo the
papor from this number onward, will understand
from whenco and how it comes. No bills will be
sent to them, aa wo havo received payment (or such
time as we shall send it to their address. Never
thcless, if any choose to pay, wo will place their
money to the crodit of the fund for gratuitous cir
culation, and some one else will receive the papor
in consequence, who might not thus havo access to
this means of nnti-slnvery Intelligence
We feel greatly gratified and encouraged by this
liberal contribution of our Cincinnati friends, to
ward extending the circulation of the paper. Will
not others also be thereby encouraged to como fur-
ward and co-operate in the same work, and aid us-
by procuring now subscribers. We had rather
hnve a new subscriber to the Bugle than a donation
of Its price to tho funds of tho Society. We havo
some few friends who nre laboring nobly for this
end. We hopo thoir faithful cxainplo may find
Tuc Testimonial to J. W. Walker. Will not
some one in each anti-slavery neighborhood lako it
upon him or herself to visit tho friends In the vi
eitiity, and collect thoir contributions for tho family
of Mr. Walkor. It will be nn appropriate tribute
to his memory, and but an act of justice to hii
fatherless children. They aro entitled to a home
where they mny bo sheltered nnd trained for use"
fulness and happiness, and tho abolitionists should
provide it. Thousands have bcon cnlightonod and
improved by Mr. Walkor's labors, aud they will
not grudgo and should not withhold a small con
tribution. Surely, a thousand persons can be found
who will be willing to contribute a dollar each fur
this purpose. Send it on promptly, dear friends,
and the work can bo done at onco.
We would suggest to tho numerous and attached
friends of Mr. Walker In Michigan, thn t they can
send their contributions toTnovAi Chandler, tho

KIDNAPPING AT AKRON.
On Thursday of lust week, a bold and outragoous
attempt was mado to kidnap a colored citizen of
Akron. It aooms the kidnappers had been prowl
ing about Cleroland for a week previous, but tho
colored people and their friends were on their
guard, and they wero unsuccessful. Aftor ar
rangements made, they thorefore made thoir de
scent upon Akron, with what result, the following
correspondence of tho Lcador will toll :

o'clock A. M., and took him to the cars, charging

half an hour. Worthington begged his friends to
get him counsel. Tho alarm was givon and an

The writ was examined by Mr. Wilson who
found it to be totally worthless.
The excited crowd refusod to permit thorn to

How is it that those scoundrels the kidnappers

Edward Davis, who so heroically escaped from
tho south and wos bo meanly returned to Slavery
by our Inhuman Government, has at length found
a release beyond the reach of fugitive slave laws
and U. S. Commissioners and marshals. We learn
from the Philadelphia llegistor that application
wos made to an attorney In Mncon, Georgia, to act
in Mb behalf. The following is his reply t
MACON, Ga., May 5, 1854.
"Ma, .Ton Wales Mv Dear Sin Your letter

Davis, about whom you writo, died a fow days ago

YAZOO SLAVE MARKET.
The following letter is from tho Conncautvillo
Courier. Tho writer In enclosing it to us says:
"It mny be that snmo of your Headers aro not
awnre that Slavery is as hateful aa it is, for I ana
auro that it is moro wicked than I thought it was
till I saw it myself. I think that if the people of
tho North could sco what I saw of Slavery in Ya
zoo, last winter they would all be ant-SIavcry."
Tho hearing of the oar of such abominations
ought to suffice to make mon anti-slavery without
waiting for ono to "rise from tho dead," or even to
CONNEAUT, March 10, 1854.
Frienh Brown Sir: As I hnvo had occasion
a short time since to visit Yazoo City, in the State
of Mississippi, 1 thought it might be interesting to
somo of your renders to know now things prosper
in that part of our glorious Union.
Yazoo City is situated on the river of that name,
about ono hundred miles from its mouth, and is a
place of grcnt trade. Leaving the landing, and
passing up tho main street, nothing seems to moot
the eye of the traveler but bales of cotton nnd
teams coming in from the cnuutry, loadod with the
same material. Passing along near the centra of
the town, I was startled at the sight of a large sign
pointing to tho loft, bearing this inscription :
nuiihr.s Aiu m.a r.a run balk iir.UK v
Somo ton or liftcon rods further on stands a largo'
building, and in and around this building may btf
seen nt all hours of tho day, mon examining stock.
Hero 1 turned nsido to seo the sight, as flloses did
tosne tho burning bush; but I kept my shoes on,
as I did not think it wan very holy ground. This
building is constructed somowhnt similar to our
horse barns, with stalls on each sido. On the riebt
hand tho stalls wore occupied by horses and mules,
and those on tho left by mon, women and ohildren,
waiting to hoar the sound "Depart, ye cursed, into
everlasting slavery, prepared by tho Dovil and tho
constitution of tho United States."
Slavery appeared moro horrid to me nt that time
than ever I had soon it pictured before. Here I
have seen somo twolve or fifteen babes, from
eighteen months to three years old, torn from thoir
mothers bosom, put on hoard ot a boat, ana sent,
to Georgia, leaving thoir mothers) broken hoartedV
never to seo thorn more. Those things are common
in Yazoo City, and many others I might nieation,.
which are too disgusting to recite.
Notwithstanding such scenes as theso, xazoo Is
a very religious place. They have somo fine church
es, and ono stands so near the great slave market
that the worslupora might hoar the groans and
shrieks of bereaved mothers. I attended one
meeting, but heard nothing said in regard to let
ting the oppressed go freo. It all seemed to go
down for 'lieavonly union."
In view of these things, allow me to say a fow
words to my Free soil friends. Had we not better
take one step up the landor, and cry "No union
with slaveholders, " rather than to contend with
Whigs and Democrats about froo roil? of which,
God knows, thore is not a foot in the United States,
and cannot be under the present organization.
